Default 2013 EcoRenovator Fall Giveaway! (Just post in the forum to qualify.)


Hey, it's fall again! That means it's time for EcoRenovator's giveaway for its readers and forum users. You guys provide us with cool things to post on the blog, find and share tons of information on the forum, and really make this site what it is. This is our chance to give something back, and help you guys achieve your goals.

So, how do you win? It's pretty simple. For veteran forum users, the giveaway will work the same way it has in previous years. If you aren't yet, you must register on the forum and make a post to enter. Each post you make from November 6th through the end of the month will be an entry into the giveaway. On December 2nd, five winners will be randomly selected from the posts made between now and then. Those five winners will be able to select a prize from the list below. Once the first winner decides what s/he wants, the second winner will be notified and will be able to make their choice, and so on with the rest of the winners.

Giveaway Prizes:

Black and Decker Thermal Leak Detector *
HomePower 1 year digital subscription
Modern Hydronic Heating by John Siegenthaler (1st edition, used) *
Niagara Conservation Earth® Showerhead – 1.25 GPM MODEL #N2912

This new TED 5000G looks very interesting.. But it says "embedded" Footprints software.
IIRC, Footprints software never had a good reputation..?.
I never liked my old version when I had it installed on my old system. It ended up on an old laptop.

There is no software to install. You simply connect to the TED and the web software running on the unit is pulled up. You could always buy the display separate if that is what you want. I have never really had a use for it though. You can use a tablet or smart phone to do the same thing and the footprints software is IMO much more robust and has so much more info that its not worth paying more for the display.

I'm not sure what you mean by the footprints software not having a good reputation. Its worked really well for me.

So, I see the giveaway has stirred up a flurry of activity, which is part of its intent. As always we like to see feedback to the giveaway. Any thoughts?

We have selected the winners. As I mentioned in the first post, the winners have been selected at random from the posts made between then and now. That includes posts 32845 to 33626. We made 781 posts in the past three weeks, each one an entry to the giveaway. So, without further delay, the winners are:

1) 33305 - Jeff5may
2) 33553 - Mikesolar
3) 33389 - Xringer
4) 32845 - Sunspot
5) 33516 - Servicetech

Congratulations guys!

As I mentioned the first winner gets first pick of the prizes, second winner gets second pick from what is left and so on and so forth. Each winner will be notified via PM when the previous winner(s) have made their decision and what prizes are left.

If the winner finds that there is nothing s/he can use or give to someone they know, we would like to encourage them to decline their prize. We will select an additional winner in this case. The goal here is to see these items put to good use, not sit around collecting dust.

As a reminder, these are the available prizes:

Black and Decker Thermal Leak Detector
HomePower 1 year digital subscription
Modern Hydronic Heating by John Siegenthaler (1st edition, used)
Niagara Conservation Earth® Showerhead – 1.25 GPM MODEL #N2912
P3 International Kill a Watt
P3 International Save a Watt - TV Standby Killer
The Energy Detective TED 5000-G whole house electricity meter
Waterpik ECO-533 1.5 GPM showerhead
